About The Wine

This is a classic dry and savoury stye of Rosé made from organic Sangiovese grapes grown in McLaren Vale.

Sangiovese is such a great variety for Rosé. The natural structure and savouriness of the variety lends some great architecture to a pink wine. This version, from winemaking team of Walter Clappis and Kimberly and James Cooter, shows clean lines of fresh acidity, moreish red fruits and plenty of spice through the finish. It's incredibly easy to knock back with a light chill.

It's an easy-sipping wine, spotless and delicious, that you can pick up for just a tick over $20/bottle. What's not to like?

Additional Info

From The Producer

2020 was a vintage of quality over quantity. The season began with good winter rainfall, followed by a mild start to spring. However, the total rainfall was below average for the third year in a row. Summer started with intense heat in mid-late December. Fortunately, the rest of the season was cooler than average with some late rain in the season, which enabled the vines to recover from the early heat and ripen seamlessly. Yields were slightly down across the district, but fruit quality was of a high standard, despite the early challenges. While catastrophic bushfires ravaged the country, McLaren Vale remained free from smoke taint.

Blend : Sangiovese (100%)

DDS review

It's a crisp and dry style of Rosé we have here. Fresh picked strawberries and rosehip tea, some refreshing citrus notes and a hint of stonefruit richness. Finish is long and flecked with spice. Pretty as a picture. - Different Drop Wine Team

A good Rose

While not quite as dry, as I really love, the Hedonist Sangiovese Rose is very drinkable and a good value wine. Certainly have enjoyed drinking this one.

not your typical lolly water rose

Creamy, with a very long finish -- a sipping wine, not a gulping wine. A little high in alcohol (12.5%) for some, but a great match with meat or strongly flavoured fish. Excellent fruit (pears in particular) as well. Definitely a favourite.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
